Hi, I just recently started to learn more about this type of discipline, and I really think it is something I could use with my own child in the future. However, I am very doubtful that her father will do the same. So my question is, what can I do to convince him to read about this area, be more supportive and actually do it with me? Also, is there any research or articles I could read online about it? Thanks!

I'm confused, what type of gentle discipline are you wanting more information on? Are you thinking along the lines of time outs, natural/logical consequences, playful parenting, up/cl? Here are some basic resources I have found very helpful:

 

* the Positive Discipline book series by Jane Nelson:

http://www.amazon.com/Positive-Discipline-Preschoolers-Years--Raising-Responsible/dp/0307341607/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1355609942&sr=8-2&keywords=positive+discipline

 

*Dr. Laura Markham's new book and website:

http://www.amazon.com/Peaceful-Parent-Happy-Kids-Connecting/dp/0399160280/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1355610025&sr=1-1&keywords=dr.+laura+markham

I also liked the "The Secret of Parenting" by Anthony Wolf. It's focus isn't gentle discipline, but it really shows/talks about how to communicate with your children.

Married to one of the last good guys left Jim
Mom to AJ 4/07 and Genevieve 5/09

And then: I'm really, really tired of making angels.

But wait, could it really be true?

Thanks for all the info! I actually have been on the Aha parenting website before, and I love it. The other part of my initial post was the question of how can I get my partner to do gentle discipline with me?
